I'd expect dessicated remains if an atmosphere loss was that quickly catastrophic.
Maybe if we go back millions of years? 10,000 isn't a long time on a planetary scale.

If another civilisation was to land a probe in a desert, they may come to the conclusion that there is and never has been life on that planet, because there is not a lot to see in the middle of the desert, but as we know we have an abundance of life here on earth, so how do we know there isn't still life on Mars but they are keeping it from us. They have lied about so many things in the past, so its a little difficult to even accept that there is no sustainable atmosphere on the planet as well. Just a thought. :0)
